The Egyptian Health Department partnered with the Illinois National Guard for a mass walk-in vaccine clinic in Carmi.
The clinic comes the same day as the state expanded vaccine eligibility to those 16 and older.
The clinic had 700 of the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccines for any resident 18 and older.
"There is a lot of people who just want the one-shot, done and over with, it's just what they feel more comfortable with so that's what we had available and we jumped right on it and said yeah we'll take it," said Kari Lane with the Egyptian Health Dept.
Illinois officials reported more than 7 million COVID-19 vaccines have been administered across the state.
Health officials reported a record of more than 175,000 doses administered in a single day last Saturday.
It was the state’s third day of reaching a new high in vaccinations.
